It is a great read, especially because I've been to many of the spots. I just got back from a camping trip right off the trail and enjoyed a trail run each morning. It is very well written. I highly recommend it.
"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step." - Martin Luther King Jr.
This fellow captures the spirit of bicycle touring:
"While traveling at 12 miles per hour, I really "see and feel" the landscape. I become part of it. I mesh with Mother Nature in a physical, mental and spiritual dance. Hard to describe, but it's exquisite on multiple levels. When it's hot, I sweat like a horse. When it's cold, I pedal to keep warm. When it's raining, I become a duck on a bike. It takes "true grit" to pedal a bicycle long distances."
